John Savident to appear in Casualty. We say 'Get him back in Coronation Street'

fred elliott.jpegOne of the darkest days in recent Corrie history was the one when the glorious John Savident decided to quit the cobbles. His portrayal of master butcher Fred Elliot was EXACTLY what Corrie is all about - big, bluff, funny, warm, OTT, memorable, heart-breaking, perfectly played, audacious and perfect. Fred was magnificent, if you don't agree a) you're wrong and b) imagine how much better Corrie would be now if Fred was still there. Miles better, that's how much.

There are now stories that John Savident will be reappearing on soapland this Xmas in an episode of Casualty. Well, here at Corrie Blog this has got us all sad. How much better it would be if Mr Savident returned to Weatherfield. Yes, his character is dead, yes that presents logical and practical difficulties, but (like Bobby coming back in Dallas) it can be done! Come on, Corrie writers, we challenge thee.

For those of you too young or addled to remember the glory that was Fred Elliot, have a gander at the clip below. It only hints at his magnificence but that hint is all we have and all we should need.
